Interpretations of Bosch's paintings have been varied and extreme: heresy, alchemy, drugs, witchcraft and, the most popular, that he was a member of a secret sect which practised orgies.
Nicholas Baum , who has been fascinated by these haunting paintings for many years, began his investigation in the belief that we would never know their full meaning. After a journey which took him to Holland, Spain. and Portugal, he is convinced that he has found the key.

Novelist Graham Greene makes his first-ever appearance on television. at the age of 78, in a documentary about his recent book. J'Accuse. Set in Nice, playground of the world's rich. this story is no work of fiction. It is a factual account of Greene's recent experience after he became personally involved in a young friend's bitterly fought divorce suit.
J'Accuse is much more than the story of one woman's fight for custody of her child. In his efforts to seek justice for his friend, Greene has uncovered a trail of organised crime, passion and ruthless violence on the Cote d'Azure.

Ellen Pitblado , widow of a famous artist, lives in Gloucestershire in the 1930s. Although generally regarded as being somewhat of a recluse, Ellen receives regular visits from several gentlemen friends.

Being down on his luck, it is Douglas's intention to extract money from his aunt by fair means or foul.
